I am ignoring the minimum payout chart on pg. 21 of the rulebook and calculating from basic math. Have I interpreted the payouts correctly?
Walsh & Co. makes £21
Hastings owns 30% of the firm
Benyon owns 10% of the firm
5 regions are open requiring a public expectation of £14. Walsh decides to pay the minimum dividend of £14.
Question One: Is this the correct payout?
Hastings gets 14 x .30 = 4.2 = £4
Benyon gets 14 x .10 = 1.4 = £1
Question Two: What does Walsh get?
Quoting the rulebook under I4, pg 21
the firm's owner takes whatever revenue remains after paying their shareholders
Does Walsh get
a) £14-4-1 = £9 with the last £7 remaining in the firm's treasury or
b) £21-4-1 = £16?
